WikiLeaks: in the end, truth must be told
THE EXPOSURE of sensitive cables by WikiLeaks unveils the arcane world of global diplomacy. The disgorging of so much sensitive correspondence will damage global credibility. The damage to diplomacy is incalculable.
In spite of this, WikiLeaks has exposed the Peruvian oil scandal of 2008, corrupt banking practices in Iceland, an Iranian nuclear accident, and human rights violations in China.
Wikileaks also released documents that showed milk powder companies in China had found a way to make more profit from their products by cutting the protein of the milk powder through the use of shaved plastics.
The truth must be told. History records that Galileo was jailed for saying publicly that planets revolve around the sun. The church apologised for the treatment of Galileo almost 400 years later.
